In less than 24 hours, the Bundle for Ukraine raised over $480,000.
Interested gamers can check out the bundle here on itch.io’s digital store. The $10 will be a donation for the victims of the current Ukraine-Russia crisis. And if you want to add more than $10 to your contribution, the bundle lets you do just that.
Some of the notable titles included in the Bundle for Ukraine are:
A Short Hike
Baba Is You
There are over 700 independent creators who have included their games in the bundle.
According to Itch, all proceeds will be donated to the International Medical Corps, currently providing medical assistance in Ukraine. The project will also give financial aid to the Ukraine-based charity, Voices of Children. This organization focuses on helping children deal with PTSD brought about by the Russian invasion and the ongoing war.
Itch also shared that over 600 games out of the 991 included in the bundle have never been part of their past bundles.
They also mentioned that some developers and publishers joined the itch.io community to include their works in the bundle. But one of the coolest features of this bundle is it won’t consist of games alone. Once they receive the bundle, donors will have access to asset packs, comics, soundtracks, e-books, and zines.
